City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

April 7, 1954. 

To the Honorable, The City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — On Tuesday, March 16, 1954, a 
group of leading citizens of Chicago officially pre- 
sented to me a major redevelopment project cover- 
ing a large plot of ground immediately north of the 
Chicago River. Known as the Fort Dearborn Pro- 
ject, this plan envisages the clearance of an area 
of approximately 151 acres and the subsequent re- 
development of this cleared land with a large group 
of structures designed to house residential units, a 
civic center, and possibly the Chicago campus of 
the University of Illinois. 

A tremendous amount of creative energy and 
painstaking work are represented by this proposal. 
It has received broad acclaim locally and has been 
given substantial national notice. It represents a 
further demonstration of Chicago's leadership in 
the field of what is now known as urban renewal. 

I would like to thank all of those who have par- 
ticipated in the creation of this project, as well as 
the sponsors who have ofl^cially presented it to the 
City. Theirs is the kind of planning and leadership 
which have made Chicago great. 

I have asked the agencies concerned to make a 
thorough study of this proposal to the end of being 
able to bring before you detailed facts for your 
consideration and possible action. I anticipate that 
the results of this inquiry will soon be available. 

Very truly yours, 
(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor.

Respectfully submitted,

Firemen's Arbitration Board 

Findings and Recommendations 

to Corporate Authorities 

March 15, 1954 

On November 12, 1953, The Firemen's Associa- 
tion Of Chicago, Local Union No. 2, A. F. L., in- 
voked the provisions of Article 13A, Chapter 24, 
Revised Cities and Villages Act, as amended, Illi- 
nois Revised Statutes, 1953, State Bar Association 
Edition, by serving upon the corporate authorities 
of the City of Chicago a Notice and Demand alleg- 
ing the existence of a dispute between the City 
and its Firemen concerning hours of labor, wages 
and working conditions and requesting the appoint- 
ment of a Firemen's Arbitration Board to hold 
hearings on the dispute, as provided by the afore- 
mentioned Article 13A. 

On December 10, 1953, the City Council, at its 
regular meeting, adopted the following Resolution 
by a vote of 46 to 0: 

"Whereas, The Firemen's Association of Chi- 
cago has served a notice and demand for a Fire- 
men's Arbitration Board as provided in Article 
13A, Chapter 24, Revised Cities and Villages Act, 
Illinois Revised Statutes, 1953; and 

Whereas, The Firemen's Association of Chi- 
cago has recommended the appointment to said 
Board of certain individuals, including Mr. 
Stephen Bailey and Mr. Stanley L. Johnson ; now 
therefore. 

Be It Resolved, That a Firemen's Arbitration 
Board is hereby established. The members of 
said Board shall be: Honorable Michael J. Cor- 
rigan, Anthony J. Mullaney, Stephen Bailey and 
Stanley L. Johnson, and the fifth member to be

appointed bv the aforesaid members. The said 
Board shall conduct hearings for the purpose of 
hearing- evidence and report its findings and rec- 
ommendations to the City Council and to the 
Firemen's Association of Chicago, as provided 
by law. 

Thereafter on December 22, 1953, the four mem- 
bers of the Arbitration Board appointed pursuant 
to the above Resolution met and selected Judge 
James J McDermott as the fifth member of the 
Board- and on December 28, 1953, the Board met 
and selected said Judge James J. McDermott to act 
as its Chairman. 

The Arbitration Board convened and held its first 
hearing on December 30, 1953. A further hearing 
was hlld on January 6, 1954 at which time the 
parties concluded placing before the Board the 
evidence at hand bearing on the issues mvolyed. 
\fter the aforementioned hearings, the Arbitration 
Board conducted a series of Executive Sessions to 
consider the evidence before it on the two major 
issues involved which were: 

1. Request for a shorter work week. 

2. Request for increased wages. 

At the outset of the first hearing, it was agreed 
by and between the representatives of The Fire- 
nien's Association Of Chicago and the officials of 
the Fire Department that a bona fide dispute did 
exist as to the questions of wages, hours and con- 
ditions of employment. 

Mr. James T. McGuire, President of The Fire- 
men's Association Of Chicago, Local Union No. 2, 
International Association Of Fire Fighters, A. F. L., 
offered testimony and during his testimony the 
Petitioners offered in evidence Exhibits 1 through 
11 in support of Petitioners' position. 

Mr McGuire discussed Exhibit 7 which is at- 
tached to and made a part of this decision, a plan 
whereby working hours of Chicago Firemen could 
be reduced from 671/2 hours a week to 56 hours 
a week: said plan contemplates three platoons in- 
stead of the present two platoon system with each 
platoon working a twenty-four hour shift; that the 
presently scheduled "extra off day" known as the 
"Kelly off" be eliminated and that a basic five rnan 
fire fighting company be employed. In addition, 
the plln contemplates one additional Deputy Fire 
Marshal, three additional Division Marshals fifteen 
additional Battalion Chiefs, ninety-two additional 
Lieutenants and fifteen additional Engineers. Since 
the plan offered contemplates a reduction m hours 
at no additional cost to the City, the additional 
officers required would have to be provided m an 
"acting" capacity. By having the additional officers 
serve in an "acting" capacity, their civil service 
status remains unchanged, they acquire no tenure 
or rights in the particular "acting" rank in which 
they serve, no new positions are created m the 
Fire Service and there is no exceeding of the salary 
accounts or number of officers provided by the City 
Council in its Appropriation Ordinance for 1954, 
which was passed December 11, 1953. -^^^^^ 
officers can be provided by verbal orders of the 
Fire Commissioner, as needed, in order to efficiently 
administer the affairs of the Fire Department. 

In support of his argument for shorter hours, 
Mr McGuire referred to Exhibit 8 attached to and 
made a part of this decision. The Exhibit is a com- 
parative study of salaries, working conditions and 
manpower strength of New York, Chicago, Phil- 
adelphia, Los Angeles and Detroit and disclosed 
that Chicago Firemen work longer hours than do 
Firemen of any of the other four cities, and that 



New York Firemen work only 42' 2 hours per week. 
In addition, this Exhibit discloses that each of the 
other four cities pays its Firemen a larger hourly 
rate of pay than is received by Chicago Firemen. 
Mr McGuire also introduced Exhibit 9 which is 
attached to and made a part of this decision and 
which discloses that Chicago has fewer Firemen 
per 1000 of population than any other of the seven- 
teen largest cities in the United States. 

The Appropriation Ordinance for the City of 
Chicago was passed December 11, 1953. The Board 
is aware that the City now has no authority to 
pass a supplemental budget for 1954; that any rec- 
ommendations the Board may make concerning 
wages would have to be considered by the corporate 
authorities in preparing the Appropriation Ordi- 
nance for 1955. 

In further consideration of Exhibit 8, the Board 
noted that Chicago Firemen received $1.28 per hour 
as compared with $1.53 for Detroit, $1.55 for Los 
Angeles, $1.80 for Philadelphia and $2.16 for New 
York Chicago is, of course, a poor last m hourly 
rate pay. The Exhibit also disclosed that New York 
has 1 4 Firemen per thousand of population, Phil- 
adelphia 1.5, Los Angeles and Detroit 1.2 each and 
Chicago, again, a poor last with .9. 

Mr McGuire supported his testimony offered con- 
cerning Exhibit 8 with statements by Mr. Newton 
C Farr former President of the Civic Federation 
and its' Executive Secretary, Harland Stockwell. 
These statements were made by the gentlemen in 
appearances before the City Council in 1952 and 
1953 and were to the effect that increased wages 
should be granted for Firemen and that hours be 
shortened by adoption of the three platoon system. 
Mr John P. Redmond, a former Division Marshal 
of the Chicago Fire Department and presently Pres- 
ident of the International Association Of Fire 
Fighters, appeared and testified before the Board 
in behalf of the Chicago Firemen. He stated that 
in his opinion, based on his experience as a Chicago 
Fireman for thirty-two years, that the shorter work 
week as set forth in Exhibit 7 could be placed in 
operation. He also pointed out that in 1917, when 
the Fire Department changed from a one platoon 
to a two platoon system, it did so without an in- 
crease in manpower and that in 1937, Chicago Fire- 
men received a reduction in hours (the first Kelly 
off") and that reduction was accomplished without 
an increase in manpower. 

The Board feels that the enviable reputation of 
the Chicago Fire Department can be attributed to 
the character and courage of its men. They know, 
too that the first concern of all Firemen, from Fire 
Commissioner Corrigan and Assistant Fire Com- 
missioner Mullaney to the most recent Fireman to 
don a blue uniform, is the protection of the lives 
and property of the citizens of our great City. 

The heads of the Fire Department have, for many 
years, impressed upon the City Council the fact 
that the Fire Department is undermanned. We are 
mindful that the present Mayor and his predeces- 
sor and the City Council have constantly sought 
from the Illinois Legislature such financial aid as 
would permit the City Council to appropriate the 
monies necessary to meet the increased salary re- 
quirements and demands for increased services. It 
must be stated, however, that, to date, the legis- 
lative grants to Chicago for these purposes have 
been found to be inadequate. Over the years, all 
Department Heads have been required to operate 
within the bounds of a budget fixed by City Coun- 
cil This budget has admittedly been insufficient. 
No employee in the City Government has been re-

qiiiivd to work longer hours without adequate com- 
pensation than have the members of the Chicago 
Fire Department. Yet the leaders of the Fire De- 
partment have so administered its affairs as to 
render protection to our people and property which 
no other city has surpassed. 

It has been necessary, in the opinion of our fire 
officials to concentrate Department strength in two 
types of districts, namely, highly congested resi- 
dential areas and high value property districts. 
The establishment of high value property districts 
is a requirement of the Fire Underwriters who rate 
and evaluate the various Fire Departments in rela- 
tion to fire insurance and the rates to be charged 
therefor. The high value property districts, com- 
prised of factories, warehouses and the like, repre- 
sent a value of millions of dollars and require many 
Firemen for protection. It is curious to note, how- 
ever, that persons and associations representing 
certain firms and corporations whose property is 
located in these high value property districts, al- 
though recognizing the justice of the requests of 
the Firemen for an increased wage and reduction 
in working hours, have failed to join with the City 
in its efforts to secure financial aid from the Legis- 
lature. 

The Board finds that no other employees of the 
City are required to work 67^2 hours per week. 
The Police Department, on July 1, 1953, by ordi- 
nance, had the hours of its men reduced to 44 hours 
per week. The Board is also aware that throughout 
the United States the 40 hour week is recognized 
by Labor and Management as the standard work 
week. Considerations of health and humane treat- 
ment of our fellow man have brought about this 
reduction. Yet in the face of well recognized stand- 
ards of reduced hours, every Fireman is required 
to contribute to the City, 27 V2 hours per week. 

This Board, having carefully considered the state- 
ments of the several witnesses and all the Exhibits 
offered and received in evidence as to the matters 
in dispute, and with full cognizance of its duty to 
the conununity and the corporate authorities, sub- 
mits the following findings to the corporate au- 
thorities : 

1. That a bona fide dispute exists between the 
City of Chicago and the Firemen of Chicago 
relative to wages paid to and hours worked 
by said Firemen. 

2. That the Board finds that it has been duly 
constituted under and by virtue of the pro- 
visions of the statute made and provided. 

3. That the plan for a 40 Hour Week offered 
in evidence by Petitioners as Exhibit 5 has 
not been demonstrated to be practical or 
workable and should not be adopted at the 
present time. 

4. That the three platoon system as shown in 
Petitioners' Exhibit 7 is workable and can 
be placed in operation without impairing the 
present efficiency or service of the Fire De- 
partment. 

5. That the adoption of the three platoon sys- 
tem will not jeopardize the life or property 
of the people of the Community as a result 
of fire. 

6. That the three platoon system, herein rec- 
ommended for adoption, will not affect the 
financial structure of the City of Chicago 
for 1954, since the plan contemplates that 
the additional officers and engineers required 
under the plan will be serving in an acting 
capacitj- only.

7. That the adoption of the three platoon sys- 
tem will permit the reduction in working 
hours of Firemen from a 671/2 Hour Week 
to a 56 Hour Week, a reduction to which 
Petitioners have demonstrated they are en- 
titled. 

8. That the installation of the three platoon 
system with the consequent reduction in 
working hours to a 56 Hour Week take effect 
October 1, 1954, thus affording the officials 
of the Fire Department ample time to pre- 
pare for execution the necessary administra- 
tive changes required in adopting the three 
platoon system proposed in Exhibit 7. 

9. That Exhibit 8 of Petitioners shows Chicago 
Firemen to be underpaid in relation to Fire- 
men of cities of comparable size and per- 
forming comparable duties. 
That the City Council, in the 1955 Appro- 
priation Ordinance, should provide a mini- 
mum annual salary of Five Thousand Two 
Hundred Fifty Dollars ($5,250.00) for Chi- 
cago Firemen. 

11. That the City Council, in the 1955 Appro- 
priation Ordinance, should provide additional 
Firemen over and above the number pres- 
ently employed, thus correcting the existing 
situation disclosed by Petitioners' Exhibits 
8 and 9, namely, that Chicago has less than 
one Fireman per one thousand of population 
and ranks last among the seventeen largest 
cities in the United States in that respect. 
We recommend that the corporate authorities 
take the necessary legal steps to put these findings 
into full force and effect at the stated dates.

All of the foregoing recommendations are hereby

Decision of Supreme Court of Illinois Upholding Zon- 
ing Ordinance Amendment Reclassifying Property 
at S. W. Cor. N. Californift and W. Cullom Aves. 

Also a communication from the Department of Law 
addressed to the City Council under date of March 
18, 1954, signed by L. Louis Karton, Head of Appeals 
and Review Division, reading as follows: 

"Re: People ex rel Alco Deree Co., a corporation, 
appellant, vs. City of Chicago, appellee, Su- 
preme Court No. 33012— 
Attorney for plaintiff: M. J. Nathanson, 134 
N. LaSalle Street. 
"Gentlemen — The Supreme Court of Illinois on 
March 17, 1954, affirmed the judgment of the Cir- 
cuit Court of Cook County which dismissed the 
complaint of plaintiff which sought to declare void 
the amendatory zoning ordinance of December 3, 
1942 as it affected the property owned by the 
plaintiff at the southwest corner of California and 
Cullom Avenues (2800 west — 4300 north) and de- 
nied the writ of mandamus sought by the plaintiff 
to compel the issuance of a building permit for the 
construction of a two-story brick building thereon. 
"The facts are set forth in detail in the attached 
opinion. The plaintiff relied heavily on the fact that 
the Supreme Court, in 2700 Irving Park Building 
Corporation vs. City of Chicago (1946) 395 111. 138, 
had held invalid the rezoning of an eighty-acre 
tract of land immediately east of the subject prop- 
erty, but the court held that the circumstances had 



undergone a substantial change because the eighty- 
acre land which had formerly been a clay pit was 
now being developed as a public park and that, 
while in 1946 the property was not suitable for 
residential development, the present existence of a 
park made the subject property eminently suitable 
for residential purposes. The court sustained the 
rezoning of the block which includes the subject 
property to apartment use from the old commercial 
use. 

"The court concludes that on the facts of this 
case a legitimate difference of opinion as to the 
reasonableness of the amendatory zoning ordin- 
ance of 1942 is disclosed and that the plaintiff had 
failed to show that the ordinance was arbitrary, 
capricious or unreasonable. 

"The plaintiff has until April 1, 1954 to file notice 
of its intention to file a petition for rehearing and 
until April 12, 1954 to file petition for rehearing."

A transverse section of the surface of the fin- 
ished pavement and gutters shall be an arc of a 
circle passing through the said gutter elevations 
and the elevation of the center of said finished 
roadwav at every part of the roadway of each of 
said specified streets between the points herein 
described. 

In all intersecting alleys herein specified at the 
street lines of said specified streets the surface of 
the finished pavement adjoining the curbing shall 
be even with the top of the curbing, and the surface 
of the finished pavement at the center of the road- 
ways of said alleys shall be three (3) inches below 
the top of the curbing, and a transverse section of 
the surface of the finished pavement at the street 
lines of said specified streets shall be an arc of a 
circle passing through the surface of the pavement 
adjoining said curbing and the surface of the 
pavement at the center of said finished roadways. 
The surface of the said pavement thence shall slope 
gradually to meet the surface of the finished pave- 
ment at the curb lines of said specified streets. 

On the sub-grade as formed and compacted shall 
be spread an insulation course of limestone screen- 
ings. Said insulation course shall be one (1) inch 
in thickness and shall extend across the full width 
of the roadbed. 

On the insulation course as formed and com- 
pacted shall be spread a foundation course consist- 
ing of a layer of crushed limestone or blast furnace 
slag of the best quality, broken so as to pass 
through a ring of four (4) inches internal diameter 
and held on a ring of two (2) inches internal diam- 
eter. The stone or slag as spread shall be well 
graded as to sizes. It shall be evenly distributed so 
as to leave no pockets filled with the small size 
stone or slag. This layer shall be thoroughly rolled 
with a self-propelled three-wheel roller, weighing 
not less than ten (10) tons. The rolling shall begin 
at the edges of the pavement and the roller shall 
move parallel with the center line of the roadway. 
The roller shall progress gradually toward the cen- 
ter of the roadway, uniformly lapping each preced- 
ing track, covering the entire surface with the 
rear wheels and continuing until the stone or slag 
does not creep or move ahead of the roller. After 
the crushed limestone has been thoroughly rolled 
and keyed, limestone screenings shall be applied 
gradually over the surface and the rolling con- 
tinued until sufficient screenings have been applied 
to completely fill the interstices. If slag is used, 
then after it has been thoroughly rolled and keyed, 
limestone screenings or fine slag shall be applied 
gradually over the surface and the rolling con- 
tinued until sufficient screenings or fine slag have 
been applied to completely fill the interstices. 

The screenings or fine slag shall be swept in with 
hand brooms to properly fill the voids. The spread- 
ing and rolling shall continue until no more screen- 
ings or fine slag will go in dry. No excess of 
screenings or fine slag shall be used before applying 
water. Immediately after the voids have been filled 
with screenings, or fine slag, the macadam shall be 
sprinkled until saturated, the sprinkler being fol- 
lowed by the roller. More screenings or fine slag 
shall be added if necessary. The sprinkling, sweep- 
ing and rolling shall continue until a grout shall be 
formed of the screenings or fine slag and water 
that will fill all voids, and form a wave of grout 
before the wheels of the roller. The quantity of 
screenings or fine slag and water necessary to fill 
the voids shall be determined by the engineer and 
shall be sufficient to produce a rough, granular 
surface. The rolling, at all times, shall begin at the 
sides, and then progress toward the center, thor- 



oughly covering the entire surface with the rear 
wheels. When compacted, this layer shall measure 
not less than five (5) inches in thickness. 

Upon the finished waterbound macadam base 
there shall be uniformly applied by an approved 
type of spreader box, two (2) inch stone to a depth 
providing a total base course thickness of three 
(3) inches after final compaction. After shaping to 
grade and rolling with a ten (10) ton roller three- 
quarter (%) inch stone chips shall be broadcast 
and broomed into the surface voids at the rate of 
fifteen (15) pounds per square yard. Liquid as- 
phalt at a temperature of 140° F. shall be uniform- 
ly applied by a pressure distributor at a rate of one 
and one-half (11/2) gallons per square yard. Stone 
chips shall again be broadcast and broomed uni- 
formly over the surface at the rate of fifteen (15) 
pounds per square yard. Liquid asphalt shall be 
uniformly applied by a pressure distributor at the 
rate of one-half (V2) gallon per square yard. Stone 
chips shall be broadcast again at the rate of ten 
(10) pounds per square yard. The surface shall 
then be thoroughly rolled. The asphalt shall con- 
form to the State Specifications for Emulsified 
Asphalt R.S. 1 and R.S. 2 page 640 State of Illinois 
Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Con- 
struction adopted January 2, 1952. 

On the said foundation course shall be placed an 
asphaltic concrete surface course two (2) inches in 
thickness consisting of an asphaltic concrete mix- 
ture conforming to the standard requirements of 
the Illinois State Division of Highways for Type 
I-II Asphaltic Concrete adopted January 2, 1952, as 
follows : the asphaltic mix shall consist of a miner- 
al aggregate bonded with an asphaltic cement. The 
mineral aggregate shall consist of the best quality 
of crushed gravel or crushed stone in sizes gradu- 
ated in accordance with the following table, viz:

(Table 45.11 p.247 State Specification) 

The asphaltic cement shall conform with the 
standard requirements of the Illinois State Division 
of Highways for Grade P.A. 6, Paving Asphalt, 
adopted January 2, 1952. It shall have a flash point 
(Cleveland open cup) 500 plus Fahrenheit. It shall 
have penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
fahrenheit of seventy-five (75) to eighty-five (85), 
and at least ninety-nine and five-tenths (99.5) per 
cent of the bitumen shall be soluble m carbon 
disulphide. 

When fifty (50) grams of said paving asphalt is 
heated in an uncovered tin box five and one-half 
(51/9) centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (31/2) centimeters in depth, and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) 
degrees fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall

be not less than seventy (70) per cent of the pene- 
tration before such heating, said penetration being 
determined as herein prescribed. Said paving as- 
phalt shall have a ductility of not less than one 
hundred (100) centimeters being determined by 
elongating a briquette dow form of said paving 
asplialt at uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per 
minute at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 
degrees fahrenheit. 

The paving asphalt and mineral aggregate shall 
be mixed when heated between three hundred (300) 
and three hundred fifty (350) degrees fahrenheit in 
an approved mixer to produce a homogeneous mix- 
ture in which all particles of aggregate are coated 
uniformly. The heated mixture shall be delivered 
to the pavement in trucks with approved clean 
tight dump bodies. The temperature when delivered 
at" the street shall be between two hundred fifty 
(250) and three hundred fifty (350) degrees fahr- 
enheit. Upon arrival the asphaltic mixture shall be 
spread upon the prepared base at a uniform depth 
and consistency so that the thickness when com- 
pacted as herein described will be two (2) inches. 
Immediately after the asphalt surface course shall 
be spread it shall be compacted thoroughly and 
uniformly with a three (3) wheel roller or a tan- 
dem roller. The asphalt paving mix shall be 
dumped first upon approved steel dump pans out- 
side of the area on which it is to be spread. Imme- 
diately thereafter it shall be distributed into place 
with shovels and spread with rakes in layers of 
uniform density and correct depth, unless a spread- 
ing machine is used. If a spreading machine is used 
it shall be of a type approved by the Board of 
Local Improvements. Immediately after the sur- 
face course mixture is placed it shall be compacted 
thoroughly and uniformly with a three-wheel roller 
or a tandem roller. One (1) or more three-wheel 
rollers, and one (1) or more tandem rollers will be 
required. The actual number of such rollers to be 
used shall be determined by the engineer in accord- 
ance with the progress of the work. If the produc- 
tion of the asphalt plant delivered to the pavement 
exceeds seventy -five (75) tons per hour additional 
rollers shall be furnished as directed by said engi- 
neer. After final rolling the asphalt surface course 
shall at all points have a density of not less than 
ninety -five (95) per cent of the maximum possible 
density of a voidless pavement composed of the 
same materials in like proportions. 

Where old catchbasins are to be abandoned the 
outlet pipe connection from the basin to the sewer 
shall be plugged and properly sealed and the corbel 
courses broken down and the basin cleaned and 
filled with suitable material. 

Where concrete cross-walks are built the con- 
struction shall be according to the Standard City 
Code of the City of Chicago for sidewalks. 

Said work is to be done in a workmanlike man- 
ner under the superintendence of the Board of 
Local Improvements of the said City of Chicago.

COMMITTEE ON HARBORS, WHARVES AND BRIDGES. 



U. S. Congress Memorialized to Permit Rebuilding of 
Highway Bridges as Well as Railroad Bridges 
over Calumet-Sag Channel at Federal Ex- 
pense, and U. S. Army Engineers Urged 
to Take Preliminary Steps for Im- 
provement of Three Railroad 
Bridges over Calumet 
River. 

The Committee on Harbors, Wharves and Bridges 
submitted the following report : 

Chicago, March 11, 1954. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Harbors, Wharves and 
Bridges, having had under consideration the pro- 
posed development of Lake Calumet as a ship- 
barge-rail-truck commercial and industrial harbor, 
and the need for providing an adequate ship chan- 
nel between Lake Michigan and Lake Calumet, begs 
leave to recommend that Your Honorable Body do 
adopt the two proposed resolutions transmitted 
herewith. 

These recommendations were concurred in by 
8 members of the committee, with no dissenting 
votes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Otto F. Janousek, 

Chairman. 

Alderman Janousek moved to concur in the com- 
mittee's recommendation and to adopt the proposed 
resolution recommended in the committee's report 
reading as follows: 

Whereas, The Chicago City Council has repeat- 
edly expressed itself in favor of the improvement 
of the Calumet-Sag Navigation Project as provided 
in House Document 677— 79th Congress, 2nd Ses- 
sion, and 

Whereas, The success of the proposed develop- 
ment of Lake Calumet as an industrial and com- 
mercial barge-ship-rail-truck harbor to be under- 
taken by the Chicago Regional Port District Board 
in the near future, to a great extent depends upon 
the improvement of the Calumet-Sag Channel ; and 

Whereas, Under the conditions of House Docu- 
ment 677 the Federal Government will assume the 
cost of the improvement and rebuilding of the 
several railroad bridges over the Channel, but 
specifically excludes Federal responsibility for the 
rebuilding of the several highway bridges over the 
Channel; and 

Whereas, The Truman-Hobbs Bill was amended 
in July, 1952, by an amendment which provides 



that the Federal Government may, in the interest 
of navigation, assume the cost of modification or 
rebuilding of highway bridges as well as railroad 
bridges over navigable waterways; 

Now Therefore, Be It Resolved, That the City 
Council of the City of Chicago respectfully petitions 
the Congress of the United States to enact such 
legislation in the present 83rd Congress as would 
modify the language regarding the bridge policy 
as expressed in House Document 677 aforemen- 
tioned, so that the Federal responsibility for bridge 
construction may include highway bridges as well 
as railroad bridges; 

And Be It Further Resolved, That the City Clerk 
be and he is hereby directed to forward copies of 
this resolution to the members of Congress repre- 
senting the States of Illinois and Indiana. 

The motion prevailed and said proposed resolution 
was adopted. 



Alderman Janousek next moved to adopt the pro- 
posed resolution recommended in the committee re- 
port reading as follows: 

Whereas, The Chicago Regional Port District 
Board is progressing in its plans which will result 
in the construction of the initial stages of develop- 
ment of Lake Calumet Harbor as a commercial and 
industrial terminal for the interchange of com- 
merce between ship, barge, rail and truck; and 

Whereas, The complete success of said harbor 
development is dependent upon the adequacy of the 
Channel of the Calumet River between Turning 
Basin No. 5 and Lake Michigan ; and 

Whereas, In that river reach extending for a 
distance of one mile lakeward of Turning Basm No. 
5 there exist three obstructive railroad bridges, 
namely — the Calumet Western Railway, the Chi- 
cago & Western Indiana Railway, and the New 
York, Chicago & St. Louis Railway bridges— which 
limit the size of ships which may enter Lake Calu- 
met Harbor, thereby impairing the complete utili- 
zation and usefulness of said facility; and 

Whereas, The Federal Government has indicated 
that said bridges would be rebuilt at Federal ex- 
pense in accordance with the provisions of the 
Truman-Hobbs Act when, as and if development of 
Lake Calumet would be undertaken ; and 

Whereas, The local cooperation required of the 
City of Chicago in the furnishing of rights of way 
to enable the Federal Government to establish 
a straight channel 300 feet wide through the reach 
of the river spanned by these 3 obstructive bridges

submitted the following report: 

Chicago, March 11, 1954.

tiate with representatives of the said District in 
reference to the terms and conditions of a lease by

mending to the Committee on Harbors, Wharves 
and Bridges whether it is preferable, from the 
standpoint of the City, to have the Chicago Region- 
al Port District, which possesses all necessary 
powers including the power to issue revenue bonds 
develop an industrial and commercial harbor iii 
Lake Calumet; and, if so, what the terms of the

mitted with a communication from Honorable Mar-

and submitted by a committee appointed by the 
Mayor pursuant to a resolution adopted by the 
City Council on October 14, 1953, page 5843 of the 
Journal of the Proceedings. 

Your Committee begs leave to recommend that 
Your Honorable Body concur in the said report, 
which is transmitted herewith, and adopt the rec- 
ommendations contained therein as the policy of 
the City of Chicago and as a directive to all inter- 
ested agencies. 

These recommendations were concurred in by 13

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Robert E. Merriam,

Alderman Merriam moved to concur in the fore- 
going report of the Committee on Housing. The mo- 
tion prevailed. 

The following are the recommendations of the 
special committee on racial tensions in public housing 
projects referred to in the report of the Committee on 
Housing : 

Recommendations of the Committee on 
Racial Tensions in Housing Projects. 

Keeping the purpose of the Committee firmly in 
mind — the alleviation and prevention of racial ten- 
sions in public housing projects; and with the 
foregoing laws, principles, and facts in mind, the 
Committee offers the following recommendations to 
deal with these situations. 

/. Subsequent Move-ins of Negro Families into 
All-White Public Housing Projects Should Be Pre- 
ceded by a Well Organized Program of Information 
and Education. This Should Not Delay the En- 
forcement of the Law. 

Such a program would take the following form : 
A. Meetings and discussions between community 
leaders and top-level public officials. 

1. Community leaders from: 

a. Churches 

b. Schools: principals, PTA, etc. 

c. Service clubs: Lions, Kiwanis, etc. 

d. Community and improvement groups 

e. Community newspaper editors, business- 
men, etc. 

f. Such other individuals as are recog- 
nized force in community. 

2. Top level representatives of City agencies: 

a. Office of the Chicago Housing and Re- 
development Coordinator 

b. Chicago Housing Authority 

c. Chicago Human Relations Commission 

d. Chicago Police Department 

e. Ward Alderman. 

3. Agenda of meeting: 

a. The story of Negro in-migration to 
Chicago as above stated. 



b. Presentation of the laws pertinent to 
racial discrimination and segregation. 

c. Information on nature of proposed 
change in tenancy; when, how many, 
type persons. 

d. Information on CHA tenancy require- 
ments and selection procedures and 
policy. 

e. Request for cooperation as necessary to 
make change in a peaceful democratic 
fashion in the American way. 

B. If desirable, subsequent to meetings of the 
community leaders, a mass meeting of people 
from and around the project in question. At 
this meeting it would be most desirable if the 
local leaders presented the picture to the 
community in conjunction with a spokesman 
from the Mayor's office. 

C. If necessary, special meetings with resistance 
groups by mayoral spokesman and local 
leaders. 

II. In Order That Normal Functioning and Services 
of the Police Department Are Not Impaired by 
Drain on Police Personnel Necessitated by Rmial 
Disturbances, the Police Commissioner Should 
Study Ways by Which Auxiliary Emergency Forces 
Might Be Provided if Such Disturbances Occur. 

The cooperation of the Park District police might 
be secured in such contingencies, or such other 
agencies as the Police Commissioner might deem 
feasible. 

The Committee recognizes that although the 
Police Department as presently constituted has 
been able to keep crime down while handUng the 
recent disturbances in a most efficient manner; 
nevertheless, the need to detail numerous personnel 
to unusual duties keeps the Department from ade- 
quately fulfilling routine needs such as traffic con- 
trol, regular patrolling, etc., when normal forces 
are not available. 

Moreover, this drain has secondary consequences 
in that it has a demoralizing effect on other seg- 
ments of the community. Despite evidence to the 
contrary, many people feel that they are not get- 
ting adequate protection in these circumstances 
and that crime has free rein in the city. Actually, 
the crime rate did not change during this period — 
only routine services have suffered. Nevertheless, 
the feeling is there, and the resentments so engen- 
dered aggravate existing racial tensions, for the 
feeling has been in these quarters that the many 
were being neglected in favor of the few. 

Therefore, the Committee feels that some sort of 
auxiliary emergency force is necessary in order 
that the laws may be properly enforced in areas 
where racial disturbances occur, while at the same 
time normal police services are maintained and the 
morale of other areas is sustained. 
///. The City Council Should Lend Force to the 
Laws of the State and the Nation by Resolution 
against Racial Discrimination in the Use of Public 
Facilities and on Behalf of Those Laws. 

Such a statement by our local government could 
serve to discourage violent resistance to the exer- 
cise of their American rights by our Negro popu- 
lation. 

IV. The City's Conservation Program Should Be 
Strengthened and Particular Attention Should Be 
Paid to Transitional Areas to See that Building 
and Zoning Laws Are Firmly Maintained. 

Very frequently properties moving from white 
to Negro occupancy have given way to overcrowd- 



7158 



JOURNAI^— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



April 7, 1954 



ing due to the pressures of the growing Negro 
population. Overcrowding inevitably leads to de- 
terioration of both dwellings and neighborhoods 
with consequent depreciation of property values. 

It is this very practical consideration which is 
often behind resistance to Negro move-ins into 
white neighborhoods, the fear that the deprecia- 
tion of property values will cut away investments 
in homes and property. A strong conservation 
program in such areas can serve to reduce this 
hazard. 

V. Such Fears Can Further Be Allayed If Such 
Groups as the Chicago Real Estate Board and 
Mortgage Bankers and Savings and Loan Groups 
Would Give Assurances that Normal Credit Re- 
sources Would Not Be Withdrawn from Such 
Neighborhoods as Long as Property Was Well 
Maintained, No Matter What the Racial Composi- 
tion of the Area. 

With the cooperation of the City and these 
groups one of the major bases to racial tensions, 
fear of economic loss, might be eliminated. 

With respect to Recommendations IV and V, the 
Committee recognizes that much of the difficulty 
surrounding this problem is based on the general 
housing shortage prevailing in Chicago. The gen- 
eral competition for housing has served to ag- 
gravate tensions beyond their normal seriousness. 

Therefore, the Committee feels that not only 
should every encouragement be given to public and 
private building programs, but that there should 
be no inhibitions placed on home building and im- 
provement where possible. The Negro population 
represents an untapped market for new homes, and 
a home conserved is a potential addition to the 
housing supply. Consequently, the extension of 
credit for new building and home improvement in- 
to these areas can contribute to relieving the hous- 
ing shortage which distresses all of Chicago. 
VL With Regard to the Situation at the Trumbull 
Homes Housing Project, the Committee recognizes 
that the Admission of the Howard Family Was 
Due to an Error. Now, Because of Alleged Ir- 
regularity in its Application, the Chicago Housing 
Authority Has Requested the Eviction of the 
Howard Family. 

What must be done is clear — public housing 
projects must be integrated. However, how this is 
done is crucial. It can mean the difference between 
an easy transition and the sort of disturbances 
that have marked the Trumbull Homes move-ins. 

Therefore, steps must be taken to see that the 
administrative procedures of the Chicago Housing 
Authority are so organized as not to allow such 
an ill-planned or unplanned move-in as touched 
the Trumbull Homes disturbances. Initial steps to 
the integration of an all-white project must be 
carefully planned. 

The move-in of the Howard family has come to 
stand as a symbol of all the tensions of the past 
months in the Trumbull Homes area; and its re- 
moval should therefore be expedited in the inter- 
ests of tranquility in the neighborhood. 

It should be made clear, however, that the three 
additional Negro families who moved into Trum- 
bull Homes are there legally and they are free to 
remain as long as they meet CHA requirements. 

The Committee feels that while these recom- 
mendations do not constitute the whole answer to 
the problem of reducing and preventing racial ten- 
sions in housing; nevertheless, they do get at 
some of the basic elements underlying these ten- 
sions : 



1. By providing for the transmission of accu- 
rate information about intended CHA activi- 
ties and the laws on which those activities 
are based, the recommendations tend to elim- 
inate the ignorance and uncertainty which 
underlie many of these tensions. Moreover, 
such information cuts off rumors which may 
aggravate tense situations. 

2. Top level leadership conferences may pro- 
vide the means for directing the attitudes 
and actions of the affected communities along 
democratic lines. When the facts about the 
background and present situation of the Ne- 
gro population are spelled out, the clearer 
understanding achieved by local leaders may 
induce them to aid in changing the thinking 
of the rest of the community. 

3. Assurances from appropriate groups and 
agencies may serve to reduce the fears about 
the consequences of racial integration on 
property values. 

4. Provision is made for protection of life and 
property which would not endanger the ade- 
quate functioning of the local police force 
should tensions occur. 

If the recommendations do indeed serve these 
purposes, then the Committee feels that a step in 
the right direction will have been taken, and a 
base provided for future study and action on these 
very vital issues. These recommendations, we be- 
lieve, are symbolic of our democratic thinking and 
our American way of life.

Presented by 
ALDERMAN EG AN (13th Ward): 

Agency and Participation Agreement with State De- 
partment of Aeronautics Amended (Construction 
Work at O'Hare Field, Chicago International 
Airport). 

A proposed ordinance reading as follows: 

Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Section 1. It is hereby ordained that Section 
8 of the ordinance passed on March 10, 1954, ap- 
pearing on page 6968 of the Journal of the Council 
Proceedings of said date, be and it is hereby 
amended by the deleting and striking out there- 
from Section 8, starting at line 55 on page 6968 
thereof up to and including line 32 on page 6969 
of said Journal, and inserting in lieu thereof the 
follovdng Section 8: 

The estimated total overall-project cost for said 
project as amended is $5,403,554.35 of which 
the estimated construction cost is $5,052,737.35; 
and as it relates to the work components there- 
of in which the Department will hereunder par- 
ticipate financially, the revised estimated con- 
struction cost is $1,158,000.00. The Department 
will and does hereby, with the approval of the 
Governor, allocate and make available to said 
project, for payment of such costs as are not 
barred by Section 34 of the Illinois Aeronautics 
Act, from funds appropriated to the Depart- 



ment by and under Section 3, Senate Bill 338, 
68th General Assembly, for such purposes, a 
sum in the maximum amount of Seven Hundred 
and Sixty Thousand Dollars and no cents ($760,- 
000.00) subject to release or releases as shall be 
issued by the Governor, State of Illinois based 
upon bids received and contract (s) let and upon 
such change orders as may be issued pursuant 
and subsequent thereto, up to said maximum 
amount. On the basis of reapportionment of Fed- 
eral funds already granted by the United States 
under the existing Grant Agreement through the 
medium of amendments thereto (which Grant 
Agreement as so amended shall be and is made 
a part hereof), it is estimated that the United 
States' share of the total overall-project costs 
of said project will be approximately $2,600,- 
000.00 of which $2,424,591.50 is the United 
States' share in construction costs; and as it 
relates to the work components thereof in which 
the Department will hereunder participate fi- 
nancially, the United States' share of the total 
cost thereof will be approximately $398,000.00, 
which is the United States' share in the construc- 
tion costs thereof. Accordingly, it is estimated 
that the share of the Municipality in the total 
overall-project costs will be $2,043,554.35 of 
which $1,868,145.85 will be the Municipality's 
share of construction costs. On the basis of the 
foregoing estimates and respective financial par- 
ticipation of the United States and the Munici- 
pality, the respective financial participation in 
the total cost of accomplishing the work com- 
ponents in which the Department will hereunder 
financially participate, will be as follows: 

Est. 
Total Cost United States Municipality Department 

Overall Project costs 

$5,403,554.35 $2,600,000.00 $2,043,554.35 $760,000.00 

Construction costs of the contract in which the 

State is to participate 
$1,158,000.00 $398,000.00 None $760,000.00 

However, the Municipality specifically agrees 
that in any event it will pay on project con- 
struction costs any amount by which the total 
of actual project construction costs may and 
shall exceed the sum of the State funds as are 
herein committed and the Federal funds granted 
to or allowed and paid on project construction 
costs, as the same may be incurred by reason 
of contingencies, overruns, engineering errors, 
or otherwise in order to complete the work 
called for by the project Amended Grant Agree- 
ment with the United States and the Project 
Plans and Specifications, as the same may, with 
the express consent and approval of the Munici- 
pality, be amended, changed, modified, or supple- 
mented — subject, however, and only, to the limi- 
tation as to revenue raising and restrictions on 
bonded indebtedness imposed by State statute 
and constitution. 

Section 2. This ordinance shall become effec- 
tive upon its passage. 

On motion of Alderman Egan said proposed ordi- 
nance was passed, by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Aldermen D'Arco, Harvey, Carey, Merriam,

Felicitations Extended to John A. Richert on 

Completion of Fifty Years of Service to 

City of Chicago. 

A proposed resolution reading as follows: 

Whereas, On April 4th of this year John A. 
Richert completed fifty years of service with the 
City of Chicago. He was elected alderman of the 
old" 4th Ward in April of 1904 and served in that 
capacity until 1923; and 

Whereas, As an alderman, he served as chair- 
man of the Committee on Finance from 1911 to 
1923, the longest time anyone has held that chair- 
manship. In that important position, as a result 
of his knowledge of the City's problems, his under- 
standing of the relationship between the City and 
its employees, and the spirit of fairness which mo- 
tivated his actions and decisions, he earned to an 
unusual degree the confidence of the employees of 
the City and the goodwill and respect of his col- 
leagues and of the public; and 

Whereas, In 1923, following his retirement as a 
member of the City Council, he was appointed 
Chief of the Finance Committee Staff, and is now 
serving his 31st year in that capacity; and 

Whereas, It is fitting that on this the occasion 
of his 50th anniversary as a City employee, trib- 
ute be paid to this fine gentleman and faithful 
public servant, who has served his City so long 
and so well; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That we, the members of the City 
Council of the City of Chicago, express to John 
A. Richert our sincere thanks for his untiring 
and unselfish efforts on behalf of the City of Chi- 
cago and extend to him our best wishes for the 
future.

resolution was adopted, unanimously, by a rising

Engineering Study Directed with View to Extending 
Milwaukee-Dearborn-Congress Subway from 
Present West Terminus to City 
Limits. 

A proposed resolution reading as follows: 

Whereas, In recent years plans and studies 
have been made by City Departments and civic 
organizations contemplating a comprehensive plan 
for the extension of our subway system in various 
sections of our city; 

" Whereas, The new subway known as the Mil- 
waukee-Dearborn-Congress route of less than four 
miles has proven a boon to Northwest Side citi- 
zens in near-by sections seeking rapid transporta- 
tion to the Loop, whereby savings of 13 minutes 
per ride are accomplished compared with previous 
elevated transportation, and, that the Chicago 
Transit Authority has reported that this fast, 
convenient and safe travel in the subway has 
been reflected in a 75 per cent increase in traffic, 
and a corresponding increase in revenue; 

Whereas, Subway routes afford the highest type 
of transportation devised by modern engineering 
ingenuity as compared with the open or "Open 
cut" routes which entail hazards created by the 
elements such as fog, rain, snow, ice, etc. ;

Whereas, The Milwaukee - Dearborn - Congress 
route if extended would continue to follow the 
course of Milwaukee Avenue with the following 
advantages : 

1. Milwaukee Avenue being a diagonal route 
shortens the distance between the extreme north- 
western city limits at Devon Avenue and Narra- 
gansett Avenue and the Chicago Loop area; 

2. That subway stations could be constructed 
along the route where the principal arteries of 
transportation intersect with the passenger traf- 
fic flowing into the subway from the north, 
south, east and west directions; 

3. Greater convenience will be afforded to the 
shopping public that patronizes shopping cen- 
ters known as Ashland and Division, North and 
Damen, Armitage and Western, Logan and 
Avondale, Irving and Cicero, Jefferson and many 
others, and likewise the many shopping centers 
situated within a reasonable distance from Mil- 
waukee Avenue; 

4. A larger volume of subway passenger traf- 
fic would increase the revenue of the Chicago 
Transit Authority, making periodic increases 
of fare unnecessary. Moreover, the heavy auto- 
mobile traffic with its parking and congestion 
difficulties, would be lessened; 

Whereas, The people of the 35th Ward and a 
large area of the Northwest Side are now served 
only by surface routes or local transportation re- 
quiring long rides on buses to reach the Loop area, 
and from many parts of the 35th Ward, an addi- 
tional bus change is required to obtain the benefit 
of the rapid transit subway facilities at Logan 
Square; therefore 

Be It Resolved, That the Commissioner of Public 
Works be and he is hereby instructed to prepare 
an engineering study of the practicability of ex- 
tending the Milwaukee-Dearborn-Congress subway 
in Milwaukee Avenue from the present west term- 
inus at Paulina Street to the City limits at Devon 
and Narragansett Avenues, and to render a re- 
port thereon to the City Council.

Ordinance 
Confirming Sale of $33,100,000 Bonds of the City of 
Chicago. 

Whereas, the ordinances authorizing two of the 
issues of bonds aggregating $15,000,000 for vari- 
ous public improvements hereinafter described pro- 
vided that such bonds bear interest at the rate of 
iy2% per annum, which was the prevailing rate of 



interest upon such bonds at the time the elections 
were held where a majority of the electors voting 
upon the question approved such ordinances, and 
three of the issues of bonds aggregating $5,000,000 
hereinafter described bear interest at the rate of 
not to exceed 3^% per annum, and four of the 
issues of bonds aggregating $13,100,000 herein- 
after described bear interest at the rate of not to 
exceed 4% per annum; and 

Whereas, money market conditions throughout 
the United States have materially changed since 
such elections were held, interest rates having in- 
creased upon all types of securities even to the 
extent of affecting the value of billions of out- 
standing U. S. Government bonds and drastically 
decreasing the market value of millions of bonds of 
municipalities that have been voted bearing a fixed 
rate of interest; and 

Whereas, the City Comptroller has given ex- 
tended publicity of the proposed sale of the nine 
issues of bonds aggregating $33,100,000 hereinafter 
described by advertisement in the Herald American, 
a newspaper published and having a general circu- 
lation in the City of Chicago, and in The Bond 
Buyer, a financial newspaper published in the City 
of New York, New York, such publication having 
been made at least ten days prior to the date of 
such sale, so as to determine the market value of 
such bonds, and* three bids for their purchase have 
been received, all of which offers to purchase said 
two issues of bonds bearing 1^4% interest are at 
less than the par value thereof, and the offers to 
purchase the other seven issues of bonds are not 
less than the par value thereof and accrued inter- 
est; and 

Whereas, in order that the various improve- 
ments contemplated to be made from the proceeds 
of said two issues of 11/2% bonds can be made, it is 
necessary that such bonds be sold at this time at 
the best price obtainable as determined by the busi- 
ness judgment and good faith of this City Council 
and the other issues of bonds should be sold in
